Nick Merrick is supposed to be the level-headed one. The peacemaker. Since it’s just him and his three hotheaded brothers against the world, that’s a survival tactic.
But now he’s got problems even his brothers can’t help him survive.
His so-called girlfriend, Quinn, is going quick as mercury from daring to crazy. Meanwhile, Quinn’s dancer friend Adam is throwing Nick off balance, forcing him to recognize a truth he’d rather shove back into the dark.
He can feel it—-the atmosphere is sizzling. Danger is on the way. But whatever happens next, Nick is starting to find out that sometimes nothing you do can keep the peace.
I started reading this series last week... Well I read them all in one go. Yep, you guessed it! I caught the Elemental bug!
The thing I like best about the series are the characters. And while I am one of those people, who thinks that many novella's these days are just a gap filler for the next 'proper' installment, I was totally taken by this one. It's my favorite novella of the series.
Because in a really short span Kemmerer managed to make me change my mind about Quinn, who I really didn't care for until now. And one finally get's insight into cool and collected, mysteriously quiet Nick. There were a couple of hints that there is way more to him than we seen in Spark. But actually reading his POV, brought home a new picture.
To be honest I am well aware that the series isn't great at plot. But Kemmerer great skill and building Character and writing each POV uniquely to the characters overrides any critique I could have about that. I simply don't care. Because each time I finished a book or a novel I went and grabbed the next one.
And after reading Breathless? I am lucky enough to have the ARC of Spirit - so one guess what I am reading at the moment!) BUT truthfully? I am dying to read Siege
A must read of lovers of the series! A warning though, it will leave you with wanting more!
